Irked by expelled SP leader Amar Singh comments accusing party workers of launching a "murderous attack" on Rahul Gandhi, his bete-noire Azam Khan on Friday said Singh "should be more concerned about his health as he is unwell".
"It is all rubbish. One should think before saying such things. He is very sick (Amar Singh) and needs treatment, rest and a lot of prayers. We are praying for his good health," Khan said while reacting to Singh's comments in his blog.
"One cannot expect anything more from a person who is unwell. He should be more concerned about his health...," the Samajwadi Party leader said.
In his latest blog, Singh gave vent to his ire against Samajwadi Party President Mulayam Singh Yadav and Azam Khan though he refrained from naming them.
Singh, who was expelled from the SP nearly a year ago, has accused them and the party of using him and later discarding him when the purpose was served.
"Sometimes black balloons are hurled at the vehicle of a popular actress (Jaya Prada) of the country, and sometimes a murderous attack is made on Rahul Gandhi while he is going silently to the university complex for a lecture; this is undignified politics," Amar Singh wrote on his blog.
Activists of SP's youth wing, protesting against Congress-led UPA's "failure" to restore students' union in Allahabad University, had clambered up his car in a security breach on Monday.
The former SP General Secretary also took a dig at Yadav for associating with an MLA (apparent reference to Amar Mani Tripathi) who makes a woman pregnant and murders her when he changes parties to make him Chief Minister.
He accuses Mulayam Singh of later calling the incident a "small incident".
"To save the slipping votebase and to return to the limelight a former senior leader (reference to himself) becomes a middleman," Amar Singh alleged.
